Performance Numbers For The New Ford RS Will Blow You Away

Americans screamed for years, imploring Ford: why should Europe get to have all the fun? By fun, we of course mean the Ford Focus RS, that certain version of the Focus that features the benefits of Ford’s performance know-how, all in a lightweight, compact–and extremely good-looking–package.

Until recently, our screams seemed to fall on deaf ears. But soon, the spring of 2016 to be exact, we’ll finally get what we wished for, and it’s everything we hoped for!

The newly redesigned 2016 Ford Focus RS is faster than any of its predecessors. To make that happen, Ford took one its innovative 2.3-liter EcoBoost engines and tweaked specially for the Focus RS. If Ford’s projections are correct, the engine will deliver exactly 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft. of torque, producing a top speed of 165 mph.

Knowing this, the performance numbers for the Focus RS may not be that surprising…but they should be just as impressive. The new 2016 Ford Focus RS goes from 0 to 62 mph in 4.7 seconds.

Often, our expectations of an exciting redesigned model can fall short. So it’s very nice to see that the new Focus RS should have no trouble exceeding any reasonable person’s expectations. See you in the spring!
